Summary Capricorn Horoscope: An emphasis on money, with two major eclipses in your financial sectors. Mercury retrograde could see a travel, work, or health matter come up for review. Saturn (your ruler) direct in your closure house could see a behind the scenes project finish up.
Extended Capricorn Horoscope: There’s sure to be lots of activity in your life this month, with two game changing eclipses, Mercury and Uranus going retrograde, and Saturn going direct!
The month begins with two major heavy hitting planets, Jupiter and Pluto, squaring one another on August 4th in your career and identity houses. While it’s possible that whatever comes up is challenging, it seems you’re ready to face the challenge head on.
This aspect has occurred before- in late November 2016 and late March 2017– so think back to those times for clues as to themes that could emerge.
Then, the first eclipse will be a lunar eclipse on August 7th in your salary house. Luckily, this eclipse will reach out happily to good luck Jupiter in your career zone, as well as stable Saturn (your ruler) in your closure house, suggesting that you could complete an assignment and be paid handsomely. It’s also possible you land a new job.
One thing to be watchful of, however, is the fact that energizer Mars will be zooming through your 8th house of credit and loans, directly opposite this eclipse. It’s possible that you will spend a lot of money at this time, or use any incoming funds to pay off debt.
Some good days to address financial needs are August 10th, 13th, 16th, 20th, 21st, 22nd, and 27th. Luckily, I don’t see any other negative squares or oppositions between planets in your financial house this month!
In fact, the solar eclipse on August 21st takes place in this very same house of money and credit, and it is the most gorgeous eclipse! It will conjunct motivator Mars and the fated North Node, reach out happily to Jupiter and Uranus in your home and career houses, and trine stable Saturn (your ruler!) in your closure zone!
If you have been paying down a loan or credit card, it’s possible you will pay off the whole thing at this time! If you are looking for a settlement in a divorce, hoping to get a bonus at work, or undergoing surgery, you have the most wonderful aspects! It’s also possible you decide to buy or sell a home at this time!
There is reason to suggest that you make any moves earlier than the eclipse, however, as on August 13th Mercury goes retrograde, and I think we all know to stay away from Mercury retrograde by now!
This time, it will take place in Virgo and your 9th house of travel, so you may need to review and revise an upcoming vacation. I would avoid making any major commitments “official” during this time or signing any contracts. You could find down the road that whatever you committed to is not what you thought it was.
Mercury also rules your 6th house of work and health, so this is an area of life that could come up for review as well. Mercury goes direct on September 5th.
Switching gears, you’ll be pleased to hear that love planet Venus is gliding through your 7th house of relationships this month, putting love and romance back on the menu!
Venus will make loving aspects to Mercury, Neptune, and Pluto respectively on August 10th, 12th, and 15th, so these are wonderful days to go on dates or spend time with your one and only.
Days I would avoid are August 17th and August 24th, when Venus will be angry with Jupiter and then Uranus in your home and career houses.
Luckily, August 27th sees the Sun in your career house reach out happily to Saturn in your closure zone. Even better, on August 25th, Saturn goes direct in your closure sector, suggesting that a behind the scenes project will speed up or become easier.
Summary Capricorn Horoscope: A personal project or relationship matter may come to a head with the full moon on July 8th. The new moon in your financial sector on July 23rd could sweep in a bonus, loan, or surgery.
Extended Capricorn Horoscope: June 23rd saw a new moon in your relationship house, conjunct Mercury and Mars in the same house, and making a loose square to Jupiter in your career zone.
It’s possible that you new personal or business partnership. Alternatively, you could have taken steps to begin a new chapter in an existing relationship.
The first few weeks of the month continue this focus on partners and relationships, with your best day to take action being July 5th, when the Sun makes a harmonious trine to Neptune in your communication house. This would be a fabulous weekend for a romantic trip or to partner up!
However, there are some hard aspects going on in your relationship house throughout the month, which could bring challenges your way. Days to watch out for are July 2nd, 4th, 9th, 17th, and 20th.
Then, July 8th sees full moon in your sign of Capricorn, and in truth, this moon is mixed.
While the moon will make a loving trine to Neptune in your communication house, suggesting you could travel or make a commitment, it will conjunct transformational Pluto, oppose warrior Mars in your relationship house, and square good luck Jupiter in your career zone.
You may end a relationship at this time, or get in a fight with a business or personal partner. It’s also possible that a personal goal of yours gets in the way of relationship or career plans.
Of course, if the relationship is strong, you have nothing to worry about- full moons like this only break apart relationships that aren’t working. It could be that the moon exposes a flaw in the relationship that you need to fix in order for the pair of you to grow.
Luckily, work and health matters seem to go well this month, with loving Venus gliding her way through Gemini. Good days to address these types of needs are July 18th, 26th, and 30th.
I would avoid July 17th and 24th for work or health-related matters.
As the month progresses, planets begin to trickle into Leo and your 8th house of finances. Luckily, it’s all good news on this front, as Mercury makes harmonious aspects with Venus, Jupiter, Saturn (your ruler), the True Node, and Uranus on July 7th, 14th, 19th, 21st, and 24th respectively.
In fact, you get a lovely new moon in this same 8th house on July 23th, suggesting that a bonus, loan, or inheritance could come your way.
Next month offers even more possibilities for finances, since there will be a stunning solar eclipse in Leo (your 8th house) on August 21st.
